Episode Quotes
Helen: Daria? Daria, the TV's not on.
Daria: Shh! I'm watching this.

Mr. O'Neill: Well, why don't you write a story taking people you know in real life and turning them into fictional characters?
Daria: I wonder if anyone would notice a difference.

Jane: Daria ... do you think, one day, I could read your story?
Daria: No ... but you can read the one where you run off with Kevin.
Jane: WHAT?!

Daria: It's a book. For school. About how fiction should do more than just entertain.
Helen: That sounds interesting.
Daria: Yeah. A writer writing a book about how writers should write books. Must have been a huge seller.

Jane: What's the problem? Take people you know and have them do whatever you want. I'd make them crawl, I tell you. Crawl!
Daria: Easy, tiger.

Daria: When the hell did you learn so much about me?
Helen: It's a funny thing, Daria. You give birth to someone, you just get an urge to keep tabs on them.
